Coffee Quaker Progress

I didn't get in quite as much stitching over the weekend as I would have liked. I did the unthinkable - went to Costco on Saturday! I usually avoid that place on the weekends, but Saturday I needed to go so I grabbed daughter Kirsten to help. Either she or I could run off into the cooler or down a crowded aisle so we wouldn't have to add to the craziness. Costco is pretty good about having all the registers running on the weekends, so checking out really was the easiest part of the experience.

As I said in my last post, Coffee Quaker came out of the pile for a little love. I finished the two birds facing each other with the blue plant between, "then I do the", and started the golden motif just below those words. I also added my initials and the year higher up on the design. Now I've used up all the floss called for the words and I'm just going to use the floss for the two birds to stitch the word "things". If I hate it, I can change it! But it should be close enough.


Not sure what project will come out for this week, so check back in a couple of days to find out!

I love that design, perfect for the NW. We have been in the Northeast and really miss our wonderful coffee places. We are heading home tomorrow and are both ready to be home! You are one brave lady for going to Costco on a Sat.!!!

I have no patience for Costco on weekends, i'm to tempted to "bump" people with the cart. Coffee Quaker looks good!

I also avoid going shopping on Saturdays as it's always so crowded everywhere.
Coffee Quaker has seen some nice attention :)
